Backup agent for Microsoft Windows servers and workstations (formerly Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE)

Secondary site repository

I have 2 2008 servers dedicaded file sharing in 2 away sites.
With a single dedup, less datas were transfered on the network and stocked on the repository.

What type of repository are you using in conjunction with Veeam B&R?

Actually our infrastructure in headquarter is in Beta but we are buying a Synology rackstation.

In away sites, endpoint agents are in solo , not plug with the B&R. Maybe in the future i download vbk's file to make incremental backup in the HQ too.

Indeed, mapping is supported. Another option might be to setup a local repository and add it to the VBR. Traffic flows directly to the repository in case of local gateway server.

Yes, that should work. By the way, email reporting can be configured locally on VEB or globally via VBR.

Lyonel,

P.S. Moved our discussion to the separate forum's thread.

Check your repository gateway properties in VBR. For CIFS the default gateway is VBR and you need to change it to any secondary site server.

Add server like descried here, then it should be possible to set it up as a gateway for the repository.

ok it's done.

On the edit backup, i must change the mount server by the local one for futures files restores stay in the away site, isn't it?
And the vpower NFS must stay enabled?

vPower NFS Service is not required for VEB.
